A pair of leaked images of the Samsung’s new Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge have surfaced online, marking the first time the new devices have been seen properly ahead of their February 21st launch.
The standard Galaxy S7 appears to have a markedly less protruding camera lens at the rear this time around, which experts believe points towards the device’s camera having fewer megapixels than last year’s Galaxy S6.
That's in line with reports that the Galaxy S7 will feature a 12-megapixel shooter, down from the 16 megapixels offered by its predecessor.
The phone's curved rear is also said to house a larger battery, with rumours flying that Samsung may once again offer users the chance to open the back of the device and insert a new battery.
The curved screen Galaxy S7 Edge looks very much like last year’s S6 Edge, with little discernible difference in design.
Both handsets are believed to come with improved internal specs, as well as a pressure-sensitive touchscreen, the latter a nod to Apple’s 3D Touch function found on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. This enables users to access shortcuts depending on how hard they press the screen.
The Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are due to be revealed at a special event on the eve of the annual Mobile World Congress event.
